LightNode Singapore BGP NetWorking VPS Hosting Test and Review

In this test, I tried out the LightNode Singapore Shared vCPU Cloud Instance, a hosting platform designed to help developers get their blog or forum up and running quickly and easily. One of the great features of this platform is that it supports application mirrors such as WordPress, which makes deployment even faster.

The Cloud Instance is powered by the QEMU Virtual CPU version 2.5+ Processor and comes equipped with 4 CPU cores, 8 GB of RAM, 50 GB of storage, and 2 TB of traffic. It also includes 1 IPv4 address and its networking is optimized for international routes, which means that users from around the world will be able to access your website quickly and easily.

One of the biggest advantages of the LightNode hosting platform is its flexible configuration and low price. As a result, you can create robust websites and applications for your customers at a lower cost than other hosting providers.

About LightNode

LightNode is a VPS hosting company that offers a variety of services for both beginners and professionals who want to create and manage their own websites. They have many exotic locations like Manila, Dubai, Riyadh, Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Dhaka, Sao Paulo, Johannesburg, etc. Also, they make hourly servers.

According to customer reviews on HostAdvice, LightNode’s VPS is stable and easy to manage with a simple control panel. One customer mentioned that they were able to quickly solve issues during the building of their VPN by re-installing the VPS through the control panel. However, one disadvantage mentioned by the customer is that LightNode doesn’t support Payoneer and can only be paid with Paypal.

LightNode offers affordable pricing plans for their VPS hosting services, with prices starting at just $7.7 per month. They offer a range of plans with varying resources, allowing users to choose the plan that best suits their needs and budget. For example, they offer a plan with 1 vCPU, 2GB Computer, 50 GB Storage, and 2000 GB Network for $8.7.
